Taste
TASTE is the fair dedicated to tastes and ideas organized by Pitti Immagine at the Stazione Leopolda in Florence, an original gastronautic voyage devoted to discovering the cultural and biological diversities of foods. Taste is a new challenge on the terrain of taste and lifestyles which today, more than ever, involves clothing and accessories, designer objects, travel and, above all, high quality foods and wines. This makes Taste a fair, a free-wheeling tour of tasting sessions and a place for pure cultural-gastronomic debates all at the same time: an event designed to be an observatory with lenses focused on contemporary developments in tastes that can recognize and pinpoint the changes in our global society.
